UNION, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A Bronx, New York woman is under arrest after state police say she tried to conceal cocaine in the palm of her hand during a motor vehicle stop Wednesday night along Interstate 84 in Union.
Police say Cindy Feliz, 23, was a passenger in an eastbound vehicle that was pulled over for having an improperly displayed temporary license plate from New Jersey.
The driver gave troopers permission to search the vehicle, said police.

Feliz was arrested and booked at State Police Troop C in Tolland. She’s due in court Thursday.
